- Crochet hook size 4.5
- Cotton yarn (e.g. Schoeller & Stahl Record 210) in the colors orange, red, light green and dark brown (82 yds / 1.75 oz or 90 m / 50 g) – you may, of course, also use any other type of yarn and crochet hook in matching size
Amount of yarn needed: For the basket shown in the picture (diameter about 8 in/ 20 cm) I have used a total amount of about 220g of yarn, which means two balls of orange and one ball (50g) of each red, light green and dark brown.
Gauge: 4 inch x 4 inch = 17 hdc x 12 rows (10 x 10 cm) Don’t worry if your gauge doesn’t match 100% here – that just means your basket might turn out slightly smaller or bigger than mine. The important thing is that you found a yarn you really like
